Consumer review by:

Great Monitor


This monitor is very compact, excellent for a dual-screen setup, even in a college dorm room.

The best 4:3 monitor I could find for the price

speakers are worthless, but why buy a monitor for its speakers


Consumer review by:

Was worried at first


I have to admit i was worried when i bought this since it was so cheap. Those fears quickly melted away when it turned on the first time.

Very nice, very nice indeed ; perfect color, sharpness and hue. everything worked out of the box with minimal setup ; No dead pixels, even looking at the monitor from an angle the image is crystal clear

It's my should be Mine

works great


Bought this to finish off a comp i built for my parents, works great and was cheap. Also have to love the fact that it was at my house in rural PA in less than 36 hours, newegg rocks.

Great LCD for the price, very bright and fairly responsive

Speakers are worthless (1w each) but never really had any intention of useing them

Consumer review by:

Good Monitor


Glad I bought this.

Very good monitor with a good response time for an excellent price

The speakers can be a little tinny, but, I have some audio drivers that make it sound alright. The speakers are quite usable
